Today, at least five death row prisoners, previously convicted on drug and murder charges, were transferred to solitary confinement for execution at Orumiyeh Central Prison in West Azerbaijan Province.

The identities of these prisoners remain unknown at this stage.

Prison authorities have reportedly informed the families of these prisoners that the execution is scheduled for tomorrow morning.

KHRN has documented the executions of at least nine prisoners in facilities in Khorramabad, Hamadan, Rasht and Karaj since the start of the new Iranian year on 21 March.

The charges leading to these executions included drug and murder-related offences.
